Technically Speaking – Here we are, again

I’ve said recently that I would try to avoid writing another financial market update, but, I’ve relented, and here we are, again, with another post about the financial market – the KLCI to be specific. This year has been an interesting one on the stock exchange. Despite moribund overall economic outlook, the stock market has…

Coffee and I

Originally posted on Ame's Monologues:
How did I get myself into coffee? “oh, you studied in Melbourne! Coffee Mecca of the world (I’d bet some folks from Seattle might have a thing or to to say about that), of course you’d be into coffee! How could you not?!” The thing is, as far as…

Coffee Buzz

Originally posted on Ame's Monologues:
So, here’s another attempt at reviving this blog. And what better way to jolt something to life than to give it some caffeine? I figured, since I never know what to write about, why don’t I just write about something I’m obsessed with, like…coffee! I’m not a coffee snob…

Book review-ish: No Is Not Enough – Naomi Klein

I have finally managed to drag myself through Naomi Klein’s “No Is Not Enough”. Now I say ‘dragged’ not because the book was boring, but rather because of how rage inducing some of the insights were, and there were a lot of them. I had to put the book down purely out of disgust at…

Attention Deficit

I think I’ve figured out why I have hard time updating my blog. You see, putting down thoughts onto the screen, in a comprehensive, structured way requires a lot of effort. It needs you to sit, plan out the flow of ideas, how they mesh into one another and ends up as something that makes…

Same Old Same Old

It’s been a couple of months since my last update. Since then I had the intention of putting up a few posts, but, they were mainly revolving around the market. Because I don’t want this blog to be a “finance market” blog, I put them on hold. Since nothing else was going on elsewhere in…

Technically speaking – Corona, what corona?

Two weeks ago I ‘forecasted’ that the market would head upwards to 1470 before making a slight pause. Well, it did just that – it went to 1470 on the 29th of May and paused – mainly because the market closed. The next couple of days, it just sailed upwards, seemingly not wanting to look…

Technically Speaking – another update

A quick follow up to my last post. Seems like the weakness I expected never materialised and the market held up quite well at the 1370 Fibonacci line and has completely flew above two resistance areas (marked red and green respectively). What could be driving the rally? I don’t really know, as far as I…

Technically Speaking – an update

It’s been quite a bumpy ride since my last entry around about two weeks ago. The market has closed the gap at 1420, and has retraced since then, bouncing at 1370 before attempting to breach the resistance at 1420, once again failing. Yesterday, the market closed down about 30 points, hovering at the Fibonacci support…

Home exercises

I have honestly lost count of how many days we’ve lived through this Movement Control Order (MCO). My rough estimate tells me we’ve just gone a couple of days over a month. Most people I know seem to be doing relatively okay, judging by their Instagram posts. I suppose we’re the lucky ones. I continue…
